Chocolate Labrador and Temperament
Posted March 25, 2009on:
Some breeders say that the chocolate Labrador can be shy and because this is caused by fear it will be aggressive. This is the opposite of the usual temperament of a Labrador. They contend this is because the gene pool for the chocolate Labrador is too small. Other breeders and owners say that the chocolate Labrador has the same gentle, playful, and even keeled temperament that all labs are known for.
Some breeders and handlers say the chocolate Labradors are somewhat silly and not as smart as the black and yellow Labs. They think it is because chocolate Labrador is bred from show dog stock and tend to see the yellow and black as working dogs and thus smarter.
